What’s at stake in Washington?
435 U.S. House seats and 33 U.S. Senate seats.
Matters of interest include: which party controls the two chambers of Congress and has oversight power of President Trump and his administration. (Hint: Democrats will investigatefar more aggressively than Republicans have, if given the chance.) Also, voters are generally eligible for those little “I Voted” stickers, which tend to be crowd pleasers.
Good to know: House seats are up every two years. But because senators serve six-year terms, which are staggered, 33 states have Senate races this fall.
If Democrats take the House, what happens?
Politically: investigations, lectern-pounding, maybe impeachment proceedings. Legislatively: probably next to nothing, with a return to divided government. Which Democrats would consider a significant upgrade.
